    Just recently started reading about mileage runs, and wondering if it is worth it, given that I am 6862 miles short of reaching Platinum status on AA. Should I go for a challenge instead? Any good mileage run routes departing out of MIA?

    Are you registered for the Elite challenge, or have you flown 40,000+ miles? If the latter, look at ANC possibilities or even a couple of less expensive 3000+ to get you there...

    Hopefully FlightDeals will make an appearance here, because most of the fares I am finding out of MIA are pretty pricey for a 7K MR...

    From our post last week and is still available:
    http://www.theflightdeal.com/2013/0...springs-california-roundtrip-including-taxes/

    Same day turn on 11/19 for $276. Routing: MIA - DFW - PSP - SFO - MIA. Will not give you all of the 6,862 miles but 5,200 miles or 5.3CPM . So you be short by 1,600ish miles which can be easily done with a sub-$200 fare on the East Coast.
